:In your own experience (not ' my buddy said he saw'). what is or was the smallest Boa (Boa c. ssp.) to give normal birth without problems? Problems means.. she later died, most of the babies were premature or stillborn, >50% slugs, that sort of thing.

:Give details on age, how many litters, locality, number of young and all that jazz. And photos if you have them.

:Oh!.. and what size cage do I get for my boa? (Sorry, just could not resist that one).

::)
I had a Hogg island boa about three years ago that gave birth to seven healthy babies and one slug. The mother was a few inches short of four feet! Very healthy to this day. My friend now owns the snake. The babies are all healthy and doing great. I kept two that are around three and a half feet now. The rest were given to friends.
